Performance Hurricane Aftershock Shock Pump Review

by Levi Bloom

hurricane aftershock pump

The Aftershock Shock Pump is a small shock pump (for any air shock) that is sold under the Performance Bicycle brand. It's made with aluminum and steel so it's strong and durable, the swivel hose helps you get around those tight spots and hard-to-reach valves, and a pressure bleed valve protects against accidental negative pressure

Pros: I bought one for $15 back when I got my first bike with an air shock, and it worked as expected. I have not had a single problem with it - it pumps easily, I can read the gauge, and it was the cheapest one out there.

Cons: Only one thing ever troubled me. For whatever reason, this shock pump never worked on my Cannondale Lefty. (It was fine for Fox and RockShox, though.)

The Final Word

If you need a shock pump to take care of your bike, and you don't want to spend too much money, grab one of these. There's probably a good chance it will work for you.

But if you can afford a nicer one, perhaps one that specifically matches your fork, go for it.
